“Solitude provides an opportunity to see how our behavior is shaped
in ways outside the compulsions of the world;
silence helps prevent us from being suffocated by our wordy world. 
Here we may catch our emotional breath and regain perspective,
as a deep unseen work transforms from the inside out.”
- Henri Nouwen


Relax. Catch your breath. Lay aside those things that have been weighing you down. Stop and listen. What is it God is longing to speak to your heart?

Sometimes we can get so caught up in the busyness of life we can’t remember the last time we took more than a few snatched moments to be still. To rest. To fully engage with God.

Is that where you are? Do you long to set everything else aside and retreat? In silence? This fall Wellspring Group is offering two options for you to do just that.

A Silent Retreat gives you the opportunity to

  • Experience a spacious, non-structured retreat with extended periods of silence for waiting, listening, dreaming, watching, walking, and journaling;
  • Meet daily with a spiritual director who will serve as a sounding board, offering perspective and prayerful discernment rather than advice;
  • Allow unprocessed things in life - unresolved conversations, situations, and decisions to come to the forefront. Often what surfaces during the times of holy leisure and spiritual direction is profound and helpful in personal insight and focus and can move you in unexpected directions!
Bethany Retreat House is managed by the Catholic order of Dominican Sisters.  It is situated on 72 acres with a spacious lawn, large open deck, trails into the woods, and outdoor Stations of the Cross.  The Sisters are very cordial and attentive, and the food is excellent—with care to serve special dietary needs.
